When I first got the book at the library, I thought it was too long for me. But when I read it, I was spellbound by the way Gracie and Noah got back together at the end of the book. They were only five and six when they met, and it was sparks when they saw each other when they were seventeen. I'm reading the book again, now that I'm in college, and I still love the book. I wish I could get it for myself!
